Ashes to ashes!

The Sunray Tower is a special tower only available in Level 9, the Stormcloud Temple. It utilizes up to 4 Sunray Sorcerers to fire a single, concentrated solar beam at any one enemy, ground or air alike. The beam can be activated by selecting the tower or pressing 4 on your keyboard (Flash only), then select the appropriate unit.

The Sunray Tower is unavailable on the iOS versions. It has a similar function to the Shrine of Regnos introduced at a much later date in Kingdom Rush: Frontiers; however, the Sunray Tower deals single-target damage, while the Shrine of Regnos deals damage in an area.

Overview[edit | edit source]

It is a tower that charges the sun rays via Sunray Sorcerers, and then retains that energy until it is needed to fire.

When used, it will instantly fire at a single enemy, dealing magic damage (true damage on Steam). The damage depends on the number of Sunray Sorcerers present. Each sorcerer costs 100 Gold to recruit; and in addition to that, recruiting a Sorcerer will instantly recharge the tower. The tower cannot target empty spaces.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Sorcerers Damage Cooldown
1 75-125 19s (20s on Flash)
2 125-175 16s (17s on Flash)
3 175-225 13s (14s on Flash)
4 225-275 10s (11s on Flash)

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The player should use the Sunray Tower shots only on big and/or problematic foes like Dark Slayers, Yetis, Rocket Riders and J.T, to make matters easier.
  • The upgrades should be used wisely. A skilled player can upgrade the Sunray Tower immediately after using it, which recharges it instantly.
  • One should get the tower into play quickly - even if only a single sorcerer is purchased, that's some extra firepower that will certainly come in handy.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The beam fired by the tower is identical to the Arcane Wizard's Death Ray, only yellow/orange rather than purple.
  • The crystal on top of the tower is most likely the Solar Heat Quartz that was used long ago to stop The Winter Queen from taking over Linirea.
  • This tower bears a slight resemblance to the Level 4 Blazing Gem, with a different color scheme and tower design.
  • The tower's crystal also looks like an orange version of the Tear of Elynie; Vez'Nan and Lord Malagar's weapon of choice and the main focus of Kingdom Rush Origins.
